Critic Reviews for Castle Season 6

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

The fact that even Fillion sometimes has to stretch beyond his normal limits to keep all the pieces in place can be attributed to the fact that Castle is many different shows, many of them half-assed.

I actually felt as though I was on an emotional see-saw for most of the hour.

Oct 1, 2013 | Rating: 4.4/5 | Full Review…

This was a solid episode, but it makes me a little wary that they went for something so heavy right out of the gate. I've always said that I enjoy Castle when it doesn't take itself too seriously and there is a lot of humor injected into the episodes.

Feel free to squeal, people.

So how on earth is Castle beginning its sixth season? The answer is easy: Castle is fun.

Aug 22, 2017 | Full Review…

The opening action sequence feels real and full of tension.

"For Better or Worse" is a fun episode that's rife with clichés, until all of a sudden it isn't.

May 13, 2014 | Rating: 8.2/10 | Full Review…

It may not have been anything earth-shattering, but it got the job done, and it felt like a classic old-school Castle episode, and that's enough of a cause for celebration, really, in and of itself.

Nov 12, 2013 | Full Review…

"Get a Clue," at least with its Case of the Week, had a fun enough element to it - as does any instance where Castle over-imagines a far noisier and far-out method to the madness.

Oct 29, 2013 | Full Review…

Castle has been back and better than ever in what has proven to be an exciting, compelling, and fresh new season so far.

An intense episode that didn't waste any time in producing the answer fans have been waiting an entire summer for.

Audience Reviews for Castle: Season 6

  • Aug 24, 2014
    Season 6 of Castle continues to deliver a health mix of comedy and crime fighting. Picking up from last season, Castle and Beckett struggle to make their relationship work as Beckett completes her training with the FBI in Washington D.C. The story arcs throughout the episodes do a lot character building, as Castle deals with his daughter's decision to leave home, Ryan starts a family, and Beckett finds closure over her mother's murder. But there are also plenty of fun comedic episodes too, as Castle and Beckett go on a treasure hunter, run afoul of a group of ninjas, and meet a possible time-traveler. And, the writing does a pretty good job at striking the right tone and creating interesting characters, with one notable exception: Pi. The most painfully annoying character in the show's history, Pi is a black mark that ruins every scene and episode he's in, and the writers seem to be blissfully unaware of this (until fan reaction forced them to write him out). Castle's sixth season tries some new and exciting things, but overall it sticks to what it does best...delivering entertaining murder mysteries.

    temporada genial brutal absolutamente una locura esta temporada.
  • May 13, 2014
    Pretty boring compared to seasons 3,4 and 5.
  • May 13, 2014
    Unimaginative and boring ending which disrespected the intelligence of the audience.
  • Mar 19, 2014
    With the charismatic lead, and good writing the show stays fresh to its sixths season.
  • Jan 13, 2014
    My love of Nathan Fillion is why I watched this show to begin with. It is silly and entertaining, it would fail miserably without him and the last few seasons have gotten weak as most shows do around the 100th.
  • Jan 12, 2014
    Stellar cast, great writers,and a fantastic crew = Best tv show ever ????
  • Nov 25, 2013
    So glad to have Rick and Kate together and the show still be as amazing as before even with the lack of pining and hoping they would hook up. Love Ryan and Espo this season so much they have such an amazing bromance and it is even better when Castle is with them.
